Hieronymus Bosch

A great painting I discovered on the Funambulist and also recognised in a movie last night is Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights. Apart from the artwork itself it is amazing to think that this piece is over 500 years old. I can highly recommend following this link and exploring the painting in high resolution. The painting is a triptych and is perhaps meant to be read from left to right. The garden of Eden is depicted on the left followed by a scene of excessive indulgence  of earthly delights and then finally damnation.
